    It wouldn't bother me, but I have debt collectors calling multiple times daily for the last owner of my phone number, which I've had since '05.Tried everything to stop them, even letters. I thought I had the answer when I gave up ios and switched to droid. I hope someone will enlighten us and give me back my sanity!

    I have more debt collectors calling asking about ppl I've never heard of too. I tried changing numbers and it's just different collectors looking for different ppl. Lol. Hope you find the answer I think a lot of us would benefit from it.

    You can always download a callblocker & block the calls that way.

    search the google store for ringo, i use that app to send contacts straight to voicemail doesnt even ring or show i had a missed call. all you have to do is add the unwanted number to your contacts

    Thank you, I am trying to stay away from so many permissions and apps that intercept calls. Being that I'm paranoid anyway I can't afford to not recieve a business call. I was hoping that it was just my ignorance to the lg ui that I missed the way to send the calls directly via in phone options.

    After the other replies to this posting, I see it's not just me :(
    Thanks to all that responded

    the best i can do for you without an app is to block calls from numbers not on your contact list.

    menu> settings> call settings> call restrictions> allow calls only from contacts.

    Can you usually send the calls to voicemail instead of just blocking them? Certain callers I don't want to simply reject out of hand; I just don't want to talk right now and would like them to leave a voice mail.
